Broken main spring - Seth Thomas Ships Clock

Seth Thomas Ships Clock
The Seth Thomas Ships Clock my wife gave me many years ago broke the main spring while winding it. It appears that a gear inside has possibly been bent as it looks slightly uneven. Is this a repairable situation? The local clocksmith it was purchased from has retired. I can't find a model or serial number on it anywhere but it is 7" in diameter, 4" deep with a chrome body, it has an internal bell and needs to be wound every day (30 hours).
